Yesterday I turned on my television and was shocked at what I saw. A tornado had ravaged through the town of Moore, Oklahoma leaving behind a trail of death and destruction. It was so hard to to look at the pictures on the television, I can’t begin to imagine how the people of that town must feel.
The hardest thing for me see was that the tornado had leveled several schools, taking with it the lives of precious children leaving their parents behind with hearts hurting and broken.
Something else I saw yesterday was that though some of the children lost their lives, there were also stories of how amazingly many children walked out of the wreckage, alive, some seemingly without even a scratch. My mixed up mind keeps wondering… is right for my heart to sing joy for the ones who are safe while at the same time it is breaking for the parents who will never hold their precious children again?
I just can’t seem to wrap my head around it all it.
Today I saw a story written by Ann Voskamp – click here to read –> A Holy Experience – When you’re wondering: How God Feels About Storms?.
Though I may never know why things happen like they do, this story reminded me of God’s overflowing heart and how he is always here with us during and after each and every storm.
Thank you for reading.
